WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?

Welcome Home! Regardless of where you are on your life's journey, we invite you to let First Church be your spiritual home. We are an accepting, engaging church with many programs designed for your whole family.

Whether you are a longtime Christian looking for a church, a curious inquirer weighing organized religion, or someone who just wants to belong, First Church will welcome you with open hearts.

The two worship spaces each set the tone for worship at First Church. The Great Heritage traditional service is held in the sanctuary on the main floor of the building. The Chancel Choir and organ lead the music and congregational singing uses the hymnal. Often worship music is augmented by other groups such as bells, vocal or instrumental soloists, or liturgical dancers.

The Bridge contemporary service is held in the fellowship hall in the basement in an informal gathering with round tables. Snacks are provided. The music is lead by the praise band. Congregational singing uses a screen. The sermon is the same in both services. And there is a special children's time in both services.
